Hi moms,
Ok, I know blueberries are really healthy and all, but I am ready to ban them from my house! I can't tell you how many blueberry stains I have had to scrub out of my kids clothes. Here's my latest blueberry problem...my daughter dropped a bowl of blueberries - not fresh ones, but frozen ones that were thawed - and they splattered juice all over my white wall and painted baseboards. I tried to clean it up right away, but it won't budge. I've tried just about every cleaner in the house. Anyone idea what might take this off?? Thanks for any and all advice!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

Thanks to everyone for all the suggestions...I think I tried them all! Unfortunately, even the magic eraser is no match for blueberries. Looks like I'll be repainting soon.

A., have you tried the Mr.Clean Magic erasers? I would think this might work, it got black permanent marker off my white back door = ) Also not sure what type of paint you have on your base boards but bac when I worked at the day care we used Goo Gone to get crayon and marker off the tables. I can't really think of anything else, I know blueberries stain very badly. One product that I cannot live without for stains on the kids clothes is the oxy clean spray, it has a yellow nozzle and a blue bottle, sometimes if I pre treat a stain and it doesn't come out I can spray it and re wash it and then it is gone, other times if I have not seen a stain then when I get it out of the dryer and see it I can spray it ( even after it has been dried! ) and it has come out...chocolate ice cream is the big stain bad guy at our house = ) Hope you find a solution...blueberries are too yummy to be banned = )

I use a toxic free products that cleans most everything. I had blueberry on my car seats. I shop at a 24 year old Health and Wellness co. Love to share the products with you so that you can have these products 2. I use them for everything.

I usually just touch up the walls with fresh paint.

the only other thing is to use kiltz paint and then repaint the walls and baseboards.

Not sure if it will work or not, but vinegar and baking soda is worth a try!
